After thoroughly investigating the house cup situation, I believe the probability of winning this year is highly in our favour! We have to put our noses to the grindstone until we can smell sweet victory beneath the salty tang of everyone else's tears. If we don't, I may have to call on the powers vested in the end of my cane when walking around the common room! You could say it'll be a "shindig" for sure. >:]

Outlandish parties aside, I have to say writing on a small roll of parchment for studying is kind of restricting! Arithmancy sure is demanding in its space. It has bigger and better plans and I think it's getting its way.

[ Sorry, Ravenclaw girls. There's now red chalk all over one wall of the dorm. Some of it looks like dates, diagrams, and calculations, although it might just be overenthusiastic scribbling. It's a little difficult to tell. ]

To whom it may concern,
We've taken liberties with the spoils of your castle but it is not nearly enough to quench our desires for vast riches.
As such, we have taken one of your fine wenches and are holding her hostage.
If somebody does not pay us a handsome fee we shall be setting sail with her on the morrow

Bring all your valuables to our ship or you will never see her again. (Your bodies are an acceptable form of payment. As is booze.)

It's so crazy about what happened to the towers, right? Imagine if it'd happened while we were all inside them! Thank goodness. I hope our beds aren't gonna be all soggy and mildewy from the rain now.

But staying with Hufflepuff could be fun! It's like a sleepover.

... Too bad about Ravenclaws. Sorry Maddie.

I'm not going to bother informing you that school is close. I'm certain you're all very aware of that fact, and no, I'm not assigning any last minute work. Even if I would greatly appreciate it if you arrive at school at least having read the first chapter of your books.

I do have an announcement, however.

Dumbledore has recently informed me that I have been granted the position as Slytherin Head of House. It's not unexpected, seeing as I'm the best option, but I'm pleased all the same.

[The next bit is filtered to just Vriska.]

I've got all your books and other supplies, as well as some new robes waiting at our home. I also got Nicholas a new terrarium.

And I have a few spare eyepatches if you want one.

[The header is very intricate drawings of vines and flowers that winds their way down the side of the page. The writing is in the center of the parchment.]

I'm not fond of Quidditch. The only games I've ever seen are the ones held at school, and even then I don't stick around for very long. I just don't see the appeal. I suppose it could be entertaining, if you find sparrows quarreling over bread crumbs to be entertaining.

[Being back home in Italy for the past few weeks, Lovino's Italian accent is a bit stronger than usual. He hasn't spoken a word of English since he came home until now.]

I came home for the last few weeks of summer, and of fucking course the week before school starts my little brother somehow manages to ruin all of my god damn quills on some stupid "art" project!

Not exactly the best thing to happen considering I still have a million damn things to write for summer assignments! We wont get a chance to get new school stuff until literally the day before school starts because that's always such a brilliant idea on my grandfathers side.

I'm so mad at him! He's been nothing but an annoying little brat this entire time. Thank fuck he's not in the same grade as me so I at least get to avoid him for the most part at school.

[So you may or may not have noticed that ever since camp, Tavros has been MIA. He's not responded to any journal entries, nor has he contacted anyone in person. In fact, he hasn't even been keeping up with anything on the journals at all, considering the fact hasn't even touched his journal. The reason? Ever since he took out Vriska's eye when she attacked him, he's become a recluse. He's barely left his room and hasn't left his house at all. If anyone could see him, they'd notice he looks thinner than normal, too, as he hasn't been eating properly. Having an eye fall into your lap is a traumatizing experience. Having your friends eye fall in your lap because of your spell is a million times worse.

But along with all of this is also guilt. He feels really, really bad for not having gone to see her in St. Mungo's or just checking up on her at all. It's now that the guilt has finally gotten to him enough to try and see how she's doing. Only he's going about it the cowards way and not asking her directly.]

Now that school is nearly back in session, I have a question for the Ravenclaw and Slytherin students taking my class. I'd noticed a couple of you were going above and beyond expectations, but I'd also noticed quite a few of you failing to meet the standards set for you. As such, I am offering an hour long extension class for ALL years twice a week in which we will cover old topics more thoroughly and begin to study new things ahead of the usual regime.

These classes will, of course, benefit your grades. So if you are unhappy with your marks or looking for extra lessons, I would consider signing up here.

If it is of any interest, these lessons will also include swimming lessons and you do not need to be in my class to attend those. You will not be doing a repeat of camp, so be sure to bring actual swimming clothes if you attend. You may sign up here, and yes, we will be joining the squid in the lake. Even if you are capable of swimming, I am able to assist you with your form and speed.

[Filtered to Bruce Banner.]
Mr.Banner. Given the amount of classes you've missed, these classes will be mandatory and they will include practicals.

Ugh, I'm so glad that's over and done with. He freakin' deserved to be kicked in the balls after what he did too.

Sorry, guys, but I'm not going to be able to be on the Quidditch team this year. Things got...complicated over summer. Let's just say I won't be seeing any sunlight soon and leave it at that, 'kay?

Seeing as the summer is drawing to a close, cutting short all of the students' entertaining activities while away from your fellows, I thought now would be the appropriate time to assign an essay that will be due your first week back. I would take this opportunity while away from school to get the research portion done, and any questions that have not already been answered through the journals can be directed to me in person when you return to Hogwarts.

There is much to be learned from Muggle potions making, which is known as CHEMISTRY. Each student should pick something used in the Muggle world, such as a medicine, intoxicant, solvant, or other potions-like substance, and write an essay detailing the ingredients, uses, and manufacture of the product, as well as identifying the wizarding equivalent, and comparing and contrasting the two. There is no required length, however poorly written and researched essays will be marked down accordingly.

First through fourth years may pick from the following list, or chose their own, as they like, however fifth years and above are expected to find something not on the list of appropriate complexity. This will require investigating Muggle resources, as you will not find the required information solely through wizarding texts. I recommend that students work together to complete this assignment.

List for 1st - 4th years. )

Good afternoon everyone.

I know we've had a bit of a rocky summer holiday, but I'd just like slip a gentle reminder that there is a quiz for Defence against the Dark Arts students in week 2 of your semester. If you haven't started studying, now might be a good time to open your books.

Homework aside, I'm sure some of you have unanswered questions regarding the food fight that got out of hand during summer camp. Per investigations, it's been discovered that someone cast a hex on certain students that caused the irrational behaviour. The Ministry are pursuing leads and the councillors of the camp are being questioned, but I'd just like to take this opportunity to assure all of you that no there will be no disciplinary action for those who had been caught firing jinxes.

I look forward to meeting all of you when school starts.

(Hehehe) Apparently I missed quite the brouhaha! Mum and I have been skimming over what we missed. And I must say, really, the things some people talk about in public forums! Shocking! (Hehehehe)

If anyone's wondering why I haven't been writing, it's because I forgot to pack my journal. I hope none of you have been waiting on me. Mum decided we should go camping. I seem to have also missed an official school camp! From the sounds of things, that wasn't exactly a bad thing, haha. On the other hand, it probably would have meant a lot less wandering around lost in the countryside.

Do they make braille maps? Mum's terrible with them.

Congratulations on surviving another year, students. I'm sure you'll appreciate your break. However, I would not want for you to become bored.

First, Second, Third and Fourth Years:
Review chapters three through to six of The Essential Defence Against the Dark Arts. Be sure to remember the essentials, you will be greeted with a quiz.

Fifth, Sixth and Seventh Years:
Review chapter nine of The Essential Defence Against the Dark Arts with great care. There will be a paper in regards to it.

On top of that, because you will be without the use of magic throughout the holidays, I would like for you to consider a question.
In a hypothetical dangerous situation, how would you defend yourself without the use of magic? I expect answers sent to this entry, those who fail to will be finding the answer the hard way.

[Private to Teachers]
If any of the more childish members of the staff have plans for the upcoming teacher prison camp, take my advice, just don't.
We're adults, honestly. If any of you have an nasty little plans you should consider a career change.

Books to read over the summer.
An extremely incomplete list.

Reread the complete works of H.P. Lovecraft. Push off other reading endeavors until this is complete. For a Muggle, he was surprisingly well-written. You would all do well to read it.

[ Following this there is an extremely long list of both Wizard and Muggle writers, a lot of things that sound like they were written over one hundred years ago, especially in the wizarding department.

It's so long that it takes up several pages in neat, elegant script. ]

There, I think that's sufficient. It's been a pleasure learning with you all this year. If you need me, simply send an owl to the Lalonde residence. I'm looking forward to a long reprieve from homework with a decent amount of light reading to keep me company.

Jade, John, if you want to do something this summer, let me know. Although my plans are lofty, I don't doubt that my mother will find some way to sabotage them. I might have to turn to plan B for my solitude.

[The voice that speaks from the journals sounds stern, even as it's rather smooth, even. This is the voice of a lady who does not mess around.]

Hello, everyone. My name is Professor Constance Peixes, and come fall term, I'll be serving as one of the Astronomy professors. I look forward to working with you all.

However, I wish to warn you that I expect a lot out of my students. In return, you will have the experience of learning from one of the Ministry's finest astronomers.

As such, over the summer, I am assigning a simple task to each of you.

For those of you going into second year through fourth year: in the early morning of 15th July, the moon will be hiding Jupiter from view. I want all of you to observe this event, if possible, and write an essay on your observations.

Fourth through sixth-years: the preceding assignment, and one other: the constellation Cepheus will be visible through the summer. I would like you to track the passage of the constellation, noting the position relative to its closest neighboring constellations and write an essay on your observations. I would also like to see your tracking charts.

Sixth and seventh-years: Both the prior assignments. In addition, each of you are to pick two additional constellations and track their patterns over the summer. Both your charts and your reports will be due on the first class of fall term.

I wish you all an excellent summer, and will look forward to meeting you in the fall.
